The State Records and Archives Department presents an image of a Royal proclamation on moving the capital city of Emperor Ly Thai To carved on wooden printing blocks.

According to Director of the State Records and Archives Department Dang Thanh Tung, the exhibition not only reveals the origin and meaning of each country name and capital, helping visitors to learn about history of nation-building and defence; but also introduces researchers as well as domestic and foreign visitors to the will for independence, the spirit of self-respect and the pride of the Vietnamese ancestors.

Since the establishment of the country, Vietnamese emperors have changed the name of the country and its capital city many times to suit the situation at the time.

The exhibition highlights the value of Nguyen Dynasty woodblocks and gives people a chance to approach rare documents.

The wooden blocks, recognised as World Documentary Heritage by UNESCO, represent an important part of the country’s feudal history. Under the Nguyen Dynasty, they were used to print information about social standards, articles on the lives and careers of the aristocracy, and historical events. They are original records from the time, making them very valuable.

The exhibition runs until December 24.
